4 reasons to come out of retirement

Throughout the course of our lives, many of us look forward to retirement. However, some people experience a lack of purpose, boredom or isolation. If this sounds like you, you may want to consider rejoining the workforce. Here are four reasons why some people are pressing pause on retirement:

  1. Earn additional income
    Working after retirement to earn additional income is not uncommon. Many retired individuals rely on a part-time job to bring in some extra cash to give them more financial freedom.
  2. Grow your self-fulfillment
    In addition to the money, being at work and feeling passionate about what you do can create feelings of self-fulfillment, which can contribute to your overall happiness. If you’re struggling to find meaning in retirement, consider a job where you can make a difference.
  3. Build a healthy routine
    While retired, it can be challenging to come up with a well-rounded schedule. Having a part-time job or a full-time job can help you create a healthy routine, while also keeping you busy and limiting boredom.
  4. Build meaningful relationships
    Rejoining the workforce can mean making new, meaningful connections with colleagues or clients.
